From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-A presentation of various megalithic monuments, primarily those in Europe. Earth mounds, standing stones, artificial hills, and henges are described, and solid examples are given. Unexciting photos and diagrams are included, but not a location map. The lack of a source bibliography casts doubt on such statements as, "There is said to be an arrangement of standing stones-in the highlands of Tibet-." The text is straightforward, if pedestrian, and is scattered with highlighted boxes on various monuments. The earth mounds of North America warrant a scant two paragraphs, wood circles three, but the rest of the world (except for Nabta in Egypt) is more modestly treated. For researchers seeking information on Stonehenge, Carnac, or other Neolithic monuments, and for the theories as to why they were constructed and for what purpose, this will prove an adequate, if dry, resource.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-8. After a brief discussion of the New Stone Age, which spread from the Middle East to the Americas beginning some 9,000 years ago, McGowen takes a look at the strange megaliths and mounds that were built during the time and still exist today. Attractive, full-color photographs dramatically show mysterious hills and stone giants from around the world, including a mound in West Virginia and animal-shaped formations in Ohio and Wisconsin. Accompanying each description are fascinating stories about the unusual forms. Though always speculative, the exotic tales of burial site rituals and precise stone calendars give a sense of both the superstition and the brilliance of early humankind. Roger Leslie
